Mas Doix Doix 2009
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
Doix estate vineyards are situated at a height of 350/500 meters above sea level on hillsides of pronounced slopes, with the characteristic slate soil called "licorella". The grapes come from vines between 80 and 105 years old, with a small but exceptional average production of 400 gr per vine.
The 2009 Costers de Vinas Viejas comes from the village of Poboleda from vines planted in 1912. A blend of 48% Garnacha, 50% Carinena and 2% Merlot, it shows much greater delineation on the nose compared to the Salanques, with fine minerality in its hints of sloes and mulberry. The palate is full-bodied and sumptuous in texture with a plush mulberry, raspberry and mineral-rich finish that is very refined and focused. Drink now-2025.
